Marriage Fears.

“What if this or that happens, then what? GOD, I HAVE TO SHARE EVERYTHING?” 

Being the spoiled only child, I’m not used to sharing or having someone in my face all of the time. If I don’t want to be bothered, I can just hang up the phone and enjoy the rest of my day. As I’m learning and growing I have discovered a few things.

Being single is great – but relationships are necessary and important. It will take some adjusting but I can’t live a selfish and fearful life. The Bible has many scriptures that point out why marriage is so important to God’s kingdom.

In the Christian lifestyle, women were designed to help a man achieve goals and visions. No, we are not meant to be doormats, or not have a voice. When a husband eventually comes into my life, I must be his teammate.

Life experiences are also preparing me for a wife role. Being in the corporate world has taught me how to respect someone as an individual while still getting work done. My beautiful aunt has shown me what a graceful wife looks like to my uncle and their wonderful children.

As I’m on this journey on allowing a man to pursue me, I will put my faith in God and know he will direct the entire thing.

24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 

Ephesians 5:24
